We all need a good distraction. Buy. Build. Play.
I ordered transformers from Triode USA ten days ago. I guess they're JITM / sitting on their hands 'cuz they shipped today.
"You're either part of the problem or part of the solution."
JITM is part of the problem.
JITM "works perfectly" when everything works perfectly.
I'm gonna order from Mojotone later. They need to eat and pay bills in Burgaw, North Carolina.
i contacted amplified parts/tubesandmore/antique electronics and they are still doing business. i had heard that some companies were shutting down so the carriers could deliver more vital products but i guess not.
i ordered from amazon yesterday. will probably be a while to get here. they deserve a hand as they are hiring 100,000 people.
JITM=just in the moment? never saw that before.
i ordered from amazon yesterday. may take a while to get it tho. they should get a hand as they are hiring 100,000 people.
i contacted amplified parts/tubesandmore/antiqueelectronics and they are still sending out orders. i had heard that some companies were shutting so that the carriers could deliver vital supplies.
I'm still buying what I need. Restringing, setting guitars up-none of the usual parts sources seem to have stopped. I ordered what I needed to tune up my lawn equipment and Amazon Prime is telling me that the orders will take a little extra time. That's OK. If you can afford it go for it!
I already got a bunch of stuff in for a true ptp AC4 built into a 1940 radio.
If you are still working and have cash then particularly if from small businesses go for it. You’ll be helping them in a time of need.
I agree with Bob , it's good to have a distraction from something beyond your control .
It stands for
Just In Time Manufacturing
It's a Bean Counter concept. The concept is inventory is overhead. If you have inventory you're over- producing. You add to your overhead and diminish your bottom line. It costs money to handle and warehouse inventory. There are additional financial theories.
Works fine until the ship hits the fan.
As a process engineer I can tell you the bottlenecks likely aren't where most people think they are.
Off topic but...it depends on what business you’re in. Yes it has to do with tying up working capital and holding inventories, but particularly useful in high tech where prices on parts fall quickly and you stay alive by competing on margins (you don’t want to hold on to overpriced inventory).
But agreed, like all business concepts there is no one size fits all. And I’m sure we can also find criticism in “buy low, sell high”.
I have ordered parts for a coodercaster for my son's graduation and gotten the stuff really quickly... so, go for it.
got it. thanks,
Well it's a good thing I went ahead and placed the order last week, non-essential business are closing everywhere. Would have lost my mind with nothing to do for the next few weeks.
Although I personally consider all guitar parts outlets to be essential businesses, in some cirucumstances state governments may disagree with me. So, potentially, there may be some delays in shipping.
Well, given there are no gigs on the foreseeable horizon, I'm viewing this as a time to do some maintenance/modification on my main player guitars/amps. Fortunately, I have a decent spare parts drawer and string inventory to get the job done w/o too much reliance on outside sources at this point. And yes, it gets the mind off other things at the moment.
If you don't continue to spend money on gear that you don't need, then the virus will have already won.
I say go for it. If I could swing it, I’d totally be taking a shot at building my first amp right now. Mojotone has a complete kit for a Brown deluxe that supposedly isn’t very difficult at all. I’d be all over that. I’ve got all the time in the world right now.
When things open back and up and I can get back to work, I’ll be able to swing it, but won’t have any time to build it.
Such is life! I say if you’ve got the means, and you’ve got the time, then have at it!
I figure what the world needs is a DeArmond M15T built on a 6G3 chassis.
You've had way more experience with suppliers than me, much, but without throwing them under the bus *too* hard, Triode are notorious for delayed shipping and JIT customer service. There was a thread on here a couple years ago by someone who found, after a long delay, they'd shipped him an empty box...
Speaking of JITM, it's one of the reasons we can't get toilet paper. And that health workers can't get PPE. JITM... and that a lot of health stuff is made in Italy and China...
It's a little rough but I can make three rolls of toilet paper by running one roll of paper towels though the bandsaw.
